Nakba day; denial and expulsion of a nation from their homeland


The Balfour Declaration is a general promise by the United Kingdom to establish a “national home for the Jews”, which is the foundation of the Nakba Day. The statement was written in a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Lionel Walter Rothschild, a senior figure in the Jewish community.

This action was taken during the First World War (1918-1914) to establish a United Kingdom-backed Palestinian Authority in the aftermath of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. The regime was created by Allied Forces and was, in fact, a kind of colonialism and occupation.

Although Britain is generally considered responsible for the Balfour Declaration, it is important to note that the publication of such a statement without the consent of other Allied powers in World War One was not possible. In one of the meetings of the British cabinet, in September 1917, cabinet ministers decide to “ask for US president, Wilson’s view before the release of the statement.”

In fact, according to a UK government statement on October 4th of the same year, Arthur Balfour insists Wilson’s approval for “making this movement very important”. France, on the other hand, even announced its support before the publication of the Balfour Declaration.

French diplomat, Jules Cambon, in a letter to the Polish Jewish Nahum Sokolow in May 1917, outlined the views of the French government toward “Jewish colonists in Palestine”: “The Allied Assistance to the Renaissance of the Jewish Nationality In the land that the Israeli people have been expelled for centuries before, it is ultimate justice and endeavoring to compensate for the past.” This letter is said to be the pioneer of the Balfour Declaration.

An increase in the Arab-Jewish conflict led to the British Royal Commission in 1937 to propose the division of Palestine, as well as the creation of an “independent entity” including al-Quds, Bethlehem, and other holy places. Although this proposal was never implemented, it was the basis for the United Nations 1947 resolution on Palestine.

This resolution led to the formation of a Jewish state in Palestine, the annexation of a part that should be an independent Arab state in Palestine to Jordan and the division of al-Quds between Israel and Jordan. Eventually, in 1948, the Israeli government formally declared independence (Nakba day).

It is now almost 70 years since the fifth day of May 1948. The rationale for the Zionist regime has been based on the formula of “the settlement of a nation without a homeland in a land without a nation.” Zionist leaders and Israeli founders have consistently denied the existence of the Palestinian nation, but gradually everyone has realized that this slogan is only one big lie to persuade the international community to agree with the establishment of the Zionist regime.

From this perspective, Jewish scholars and critics of this people have come to the conclusion that Zionism is a historical mistake in the history of the Jews and is based on the principles of racism, colonialism and warfare, and the Jewish community must be separated from it. Criticizing the Zionist thought and questioning the historical and religious documentation of it by the Jews is somehow an intrinsic critique.

The formation of a heterogeneous society composed of different classes without a common language has more than any other factor contributing to the artificiality of the structure of Israel. So far, the provision of physical security has prevented the disintegration of the texture of this regime.

By adopting and continuing its racial discrimination policies, Israel has practically corrupted the social and religious forces in Palestine, and the escalation of the internal contradictions and disagreements of the regime has motivated these forces to suppress the regime in times of crisis.

Israel has relied externally and specifically on the United States to secure and stabilize its position in the region. The United States has always been trying to stabilize the status of the Zionist regime by creating insecurity in the Middle East. After September 11, 2001, it was an excuse for a greater US presence in the Middle East.

The US invasion of Afghanistan and after that on Iraq, the formation of Takfiri groups and their support for creating insecurity and war in Syria and the war in Saudi Arabia and Yemen can all be done in line with American policies to foment religious disputes in the Middle East and insecurity of the region to support the Zionist regime.

Among the recent actions of the United States include the Trump Century Deal (according to which the Palestinian refugees in other countries will not be entitled to return, and Palestine will only own the remaining lands of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip), as well as the introduction of the occupied city of al-Quds as the capital of the fake Israel regime, the decision to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds (May 14, 2018) highlighted the recognition of the Zionist regime’s illegal rule over the illegal actions of Netanyahu in the occupied territories, including the settlement and the renaming of the Golan and the occupied territories.

Meanwhile, the United Nations (General Assembly and Security Council) has adopted several resolutions since 1967. In all of these resolutions, it has been emphasized that the eastern part of the al-Quds is an occupied region, and emphasis on the occupation that has been made through the use of force.

In addition, in these resolutions, the accession of al-Quds to Israel has not been recognized and warns the Zionist regime of any political, legal, geographical or demographic changes in the structure of this holy city. In a number of these resolutions, the aggression described actions taken by Israel in the eastern part of Jerusalem has recognized these actions as a factor in endangering peace in the Middle East.

Israel has been working since the occupation of al-Quds in any peace talks between that country, the Palestinians and Arab countries, that there is no possibility of re-dividing the city into two parts or internationalization, as proposed at the end of the British mandate.

These attitudes are seen in the context of the long-term strategy of the Jewish government of the Israel about the East al-Quds and the Old City, as it was seen in 1948 (the day of Nakba), and since 1967, to seize and occupy and confiscate lands clearly and obviously was the first priority has been in this strategy.
